Saad Shahzad, Chief Strategy Officer of dinCloud Will Be a Featured Speaker at the Second Annual UP2011 Cloud Computing Conference

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA–(Marketwire – Dec 7, 2011) – dinCloud, a leading cloud services provider of hosted virtual desktops, announced Saad Shahzad, Chief Strategy Officer of dinCloud, will be a featured speaker at UP2011 — the world’s first hybrid format cloud computing conference taking place December 5 – 9, 2011 in Mountain View, CA and online.

Shahzad’s December 7, 3pm session, Conversion to the Cloud: The ROI of Going Virtual, will walk attendees through three different case comparisons to help businesses understand base assumptions connected to a move to the cloud. Is a business best staying within the “Business as Usual” model? Should they look to “Do-it-Yourself” migration to a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)? Is the right answer a Hosted Virtual Desktop solution? These three alternatives will be explored in a way that helps session attendees quantify the benefits of each pathway and to how to determine if going virtual is right for their business.

Title: Conversion to the Cloud: The ROI of Going Virtual

Date: Wednesday, December 7

Time: 3pm EST

“Today’s IT departments are faced with the dilemma of picking solutions with the least cost but the highest level of benefits. As companies begin shifting over to the cloud in the post-PC era, they do so to reap the benefits of scale, higher availability, and lower cost,” said Shahzhad. “We find that businesses want to move to cloud but sometimes want help justifying the move economically.” As a former associate at Goldman Sachs, Shahzad has experience in examining the financial impact IT decisions have on the bottom line. His UP2011 presentation will pull from that experience as well as his current role of indentifying cloud technologies for dinCloud’s solutions.
